I have been researching a clutch change on my 7th Generation Accord for some time and wanted to see what the other K series use and make a comparison. In essence all the K series share the same spine pattern on the friction plate so getting a uprated friction plate from a Type-R is an easy option. Last time I was down at HH with @DeviateDefiant they kindly let us unbox a few brand new clutch kits for our research and we could mapped out all the part and part numbers. So big thank you guys. How did the Type-R and compared the component with the 7th and 8th Generation ? The biggest obvious gain was how light the FN2 flywheel is, that will give you an easy improvement in initial acceleration, all the Type-R pressure plates have thicker and few fingers for higher clamping force and looking at the build the pressure plates they are far superior to the ones found the 7th Generation Accord. The Friction plate is where the biggest improvement lie, spring on the plate are shorter and more coils,more heavy duty rivets and over a dozen more than the stock Accord which has four on the main disc!! Conclusion:- The FN2 system does look like the ideal candidate for the replacement , I have one concern at higher rev will the reduced weight of the flywheel induce vibration and imbalance. The 7th Generation Accord engine are super silky and refined a lighter flywheel may make the engine feel slightly more coarser. I still need to do more research on this area. To the biggest shock of this comparison was how heavy the 8th Generation 2.4 flywheel is but again the car is faster than the 7th Generation 2.4 which is baffling Honda have seriously made massive improvements in the 8th Generation . I wonder how it will be with a FN2 flywheel.. There is still more research to do on the 8th Generation set up to see if there are any improvement in the pressure and friction plate we didn't have a set on day. So this thread will get more updates and pictures too. DC5 22100-PRC-003 FLYWHEEL COMP.

I have also been researching the Diesel set up on the CU3 ATS for last couple of months and I am 99.9% sure its a direct bolt on to the I-CTDI. So you guys wanting better set up for your remapped diesels well you have found the solution. Sadly Petrol R&D takes priority so diesel will be some time down the line, if someone wants to take the reins on that front I can forward all my work and you run with it to the finish.
